Memory for Parallel Structure and Repeated Items in Compound Sentences and Digit, Letter, and Word Strings.
Kamil, Michael L.
The purpose of this study was to determine: (1) the effects of repeating words in compound sentences; and (2) the differences in encoding processes in short term memory for natural language materials compared with nonlinguistic material. A series of give experiments was administered to first graders, college students, and older subjects. The findings point to a general short term memory encoding strategy for compound sentences and digits, letter and word strings with compound structures. (Author/EK)
